    Yeah I think I will go with hot dip as I can get it dipped for $2.25+gst per kg. Not sure what the chassis weighs but guessing around 100-150kg.... the galv guy just said to get it sand blasted to prep it so the whole process will be relatively cheap too!

    Iím not too bothered about painting it afterwards though, the galv guy said in order to paint over the galv, they would have to skip the quenching process and use an etching acid to provide a surface for the paint to stick to. He said it is possible, but the galv coating wonít be as affective.

    Cheers,

    P.s your Landy looks awesome!
    Yeah at that sort of price don't even bother with anything else especially if it's all stripped back. Just make sure all the rust repairs and chassis mods are finished 100% so it's all coated properly.
    As long as they can fit the chassis in the tank or whatever they use you will be laughing!
    Thanks for that, it was ment to be a quick tart up but it's just been dragging on I've been a bit lazy with it. Had too many other priorities....

    Cheers Jim

    Hey Jim,

    Yeah, I have heard from a few people that land rovers are never ďfinishedĒ and once you start youíll never stop.... and Iím quite happy about that!

    Cheers

    My first Series 2a x3 (NZ)

    Hey guys,

    This was nice to come home to! Ordered from paddock spares on Sunday and they arrived Friday 3.45pm! The bags have the gear lever, low range lever and handbrake gators.

    Hereís the finished dash panel too! Iím liking the finish.



    Tomorrow Iíll work on taking a few more bits off. I have the steering box recon kit and steering relay seal coming, so I think Iíll get those off and prepped

    Cheers
    Simon
